June 14, 2023
Every year BASID invites industry experts to give their thoughts and insight on products and technologies that were showcased at Display Week 2023. This year we are pleased to welcome Sweta and Sihui to share with us their take on Display Week 2023!
Sweta Dash: Emerging Display Technologies at SID Display Week 2023
DisplayWeek 2023 showcased products based on emerging display technologies (such as OLED, QD OLED, MiniLED, MicroLED, MicroOLED (SiOLED), Light Field Display..) and discussed technology advancements and trends through keynote sessions, seminars, symposiums and Business conference.
What will be the market implications of these technology development trends? Can these developments and innovations for next gen products drive future demand growth? This presentation will discuss emerging display technology trends and implications for various application markets (TV, monitor, notebook, tablet, smartphones, auto, AR/VR and others).
Sihui He: AR/VR at Display Week 2023
Display Week 2023 showcased different displays and optics for AR/VR. This presentation will put the main technologies together, explain how they work, and compare those technologies.

During her years at IHS and iSuppli, she was exceptionally accurate in forecasting LCD supply, demand, pricing, and technology adoption.
Sweta holds a Bachelor of Arts (Hons.) and a Master of Arts in Economics from the University of Toronto, Canada.
Sihui He, Physicist, Applied Materials
Sihui He is currently serving as Vice Chair for Bay Area Chapter of SID (BASID), and she is a physicist in Applied Materials, working on waveguides for Augmented Reality (AR)/Mixed Reality (MR) glasses.
Sihui has been in the AR/MR industry for 8 years. She began her AR/MR journey in 2015 in Microsoft HoloLens team, which developed the first all-in-one mixed reality (MR) headset. She worked on the development of future generations, aiming to improve waveguide efficiency, generate true 3D image with varied focus depth, and to solve occlusion problem of the outside world. These three topics remained to be major challenges for AR display today.
In 2017, Sihui joined DigiLens. There she developed waveguide simulation tools from scratch, then used these tools to design AR glasses as well as the fabrication optics. These simulation tools, waveguide design and fabrication were successfully licensed/transferred to customers.
She joined Meta Reality Lab Research in 2020. She worked on both AR and VR (virtual reality) there. She was the tech-lead of AR waveguide future technology development. She also led the development of a high efficiency VR display from concept to prototype.
Sihui holds a Bachelor of Information Engineering from Zhejiang University in China, and a Ph.D. in optics from University of Central Florida, under supervision of Prof. Shin-Tson Wu in CREOL and Prof. Jiyu Fang in Department of Materials Science and Engineering. Her graduate research focused on liquid crystal biosensors.

John L. Miller
BA-SID Professional Person Spotlight
John L. Miller
John L. Miller has served as Treasurer, Director and Secretary for BASID since 2009. Currently he is launching a startup company, depthVUE and developing a 32” glasses-free eye-tracked 3D monitor for the professional display market. Prior he developed OEM business relationships for a Shenzhen startup company, Photonics Crystal that developed a unique transparent projection screen technology product, NanoAR®, based on nanoprinted microstructures. He is also Program Manager for the International Committee for Display Metrology (ICDM), contracted by SID to assist the Executive Committee in creating new IDMS standards.
John has been working in the stereoscopic 3D industry for nearly 35 years concentrating on glasses-free 3D technology (autostereoscopy). John was Program Manager in 2014 for a Wright Patterson AFB Phase I SBIR contract titled Holographic Lightfield 3D Display Metrology. Prior to dep3D he worked at Perceptual Images in Los Gatos, CA (1988-2002) developing autostereoscopic video displays and single-lens stereo video cameras. Perceptual Images received two SBIR Phase I contracts (Army 1991 and NASA 1992). From 1991-97 John worked at Dimensional Visions Group, responsible for developing the lenticular lithographic printed products. He received a BSME at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology.
